Most of you are in your warm home, eating a nice meal while you make these awful statements. Don't you have any love and caring for those who are not as fortunate as you??? Donate some clothes, blankets , coats, etc. to Tent City and show some love, instead of putting them down and criticizing Pastor Steve for his "caring". Remember to "pass it forward" and sent a little prayer their way. And how about thanking "the powers that be" for the blessings you have received. There, but for the Grace of God, go you!!!!

Yes I am in my warm house that I go out and work for, I don't do drugs and I most clertainly will not enable people that choose to and not help themselves ..... If you would like to, its on you! I thank my lucky stars everyday for what I have and know its because I work damn hard for it! I'm pretty sure I speak for most with this statement... Have a good night

It's a shame. About your kids, I mean. I shudder to think about the sort of ignorant, narrow-minded, selfish people they are going to be when they grow up. Despite what you may think, being a mother is not a hobby. You should take it more seriously.

It's unclear who you think you're fooling, Lee, but it's certainly not us. You don't work hard. You know it and I know it and everyone who knows you knows it, so why claim otherwise? Be honest with yourself. OWN the fact that you're a privileged, lazy, selfish person. Just don't pass those traits on to your children. Please, for the good of all of us, teach them that you are NOT the example they should follow.
